Sony To Shut Down Multiplayer Servers For Games You Are Not Playing

Modnation Racers: Road TripIt's always sad when a video game publisher chooses to shut down the servers that make multiplayer modes possible, and once again the Grim Reaper has come for a handful of Sony PlayStation titles.  The sadness is mitigated by the fact that you probably won't even notice the loss of these games as you likely were not playing them anyway.  Prepare to say farewell to the multiplayer functionality of games such as Sports Champions for PS3 and Modnation Racers: Road Trip for the PS Vita.

As of 1 July 2017 you will no longer be able to use the online features of the following games:


High Velocity Bowling
Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest
Sports Champions
Sports Champions 2

PS Vita

Modnation Racers: Road Trip


Kill Strain

These games will join our honored dead such as MotorStorm, Calling All Cars, PAIN, and Resistance: Fall of Man.  Yesterday's "Available Now!" is tomorrow's "We regret to inform you".  Trophy hunters and game archivists should get busy before it's too late, while the rest of us will go back to whatever hot new game is today's big deal.  Ashes to ashes, bytes to bytes.
